…………………………………………………………………………………...
TAMARACK LAKE ESTATE is really more like a resort than a house, you get so much provided for your vacation. Most people come to Cape Cod to gaze at the ocean. But what if you could be at the ocean beach for hours on end, and two minutes later go home to a luxurious lakefront estate a few blocks away? Imagine the enjoyment of having the best of both worlds -- the sandy beaches of Cape Cod Bay and the sparkling clear waters of a spring-fed 376-acre glacial 'pond.' (One guest described it as a Lake Tahoe/Cape Cod vacation.) In this amazing spot, you'll have privacy, recreation, and comfort in a setting graced with sparkling waters, towering pines, brick paths and patios, decks, private sandy beach, dock, and boathouse -- even before you encounter the incomparable home itself.

The home is VERY well provisioned, with nice linens, top of the line appliances , cookware, spices, condiments, baking needs, soaps, paper goods, laundry supplies, Tamarack has wireless Internet, digital cable TV, an extra wet-bar kitchen to serve the Great Room, kayaks, canoe, swim platform, dock, boathouse with bunk beds, water toys, life jackets, – private waterfront beach and fire pit, Great Room patio also has a fire pit, there is a barbeque patio, picnic area.

BEDROOMS AND SLEEPING SPACES
-waterfront KING bdrm (made of 2 singles)
-waterfront QUEEN bdrm with luxury bathroom
-waterfront 2 FULL beds bdrm
-parkside small bdrm with KING bed (made up of 2 singles) (check back with us on this)
-main floor bdrm QUEEN bedroom
- Great Room loft with SINGLE bed /could have 3-4 sleeping bags on padded, carpeted floor
- Not 'civilized' bedroom space, but bunks in boathouse at water's edge (made up by special arrangement, no plumbing at water's edge)

Tamarack has a beautiful gathering room, tastefully decorated in restrained Nantucket style, a place to converse or watch TV. From here, enter the sleek mini-kitchen outside the Great Room. The Great Room, added to the house in the '90s, has a 22-foot stone fireplace, sit-upon hearth, plank floors, soaring ceilings and a expansive glazed-brick veranda where Adirondack chairs line up to take in the water view. This magnificent room is divided into areas: a banquet table, a writing area, two sitting areas with off-white couches, a British West Indies armoire housing the TV, and 1830s mahogany horseshoe counter for laying out a buffet, or locating your laptops *WiFi throughout.

You may feel inspired to write your memoirs here under the watchful eye of the Sable Antelope on the fireplace. Ship stairs lead to a carpeted loft overlooking the gigantic room. A wall of sliders open to the large brick patio, offering a flow and ease of indoor-outdoor living, with mature estate plantings and towering pines.

The fantastic main kitchen has a vaulted beamed ceiling with six skylights and excellent task lighting for cooking. Wood floors, mahogany countertops, and top quality appliances make this two-sink, two-dishwasher, three-oven, bountifully-stocked and meticulous kitchen a place to spend all your time. The chefs will appreciate our Thermador ProHarmony gourmet gas range with Faber pro hood, Miele MasterChef double convection oven, Sub Zero glass door refrigerator. Miele and Bosch dishwashers make cleaning-up painless. You may want to spend your entire time in the kitchen. Step out the French doors into the sunny courtyard to snip some herbs or turn right to go to the brick barbeque patio with its Weber gas grill and stress-removing lake view.

The bedrooms are pleasant and thoughtfully decorated. They are appointed as follows: (upstairs) master suite = lake view, queen bed and luxurious bathroom. Middle bedroom = lake view, 2 full-sized beds with antique cannonball headboards. 3rd bedroom= lake view, 4 twin beds (think cousins spending the summer together). 4th bedroom=courtyard side, two single beds. Main floor bedroom (just off the Gathering Room and mini-kitchen/wet bar) queen bed and adjacent bathroom (grab bar installed in tub wall.)

Tamarack has a private boat dock with jet ski ramp, a sandy beach, a boathouse with a bunk bed and all-glass boathouse doors, with the lake lapping at the edge of the boathouse -- an exciting location in itself. Kayaks, a canoe, floats, and water toys are supplied.

For those considering accessibility in case a dear one isn't as mobile as in the past, most of the home's features are at-grade. The slope down to the water is an easy stroll and there is a secondary driveway down by the dock that enables access by car.

The circular driveway allows multiple vehicles to navigate through the park-like setting, and there is space for an event tent and caterers' vans. (On a case-by-case basis, we will consider very small weddings, most neighbors aren't keen on weddings.)

Personal checks for rental fees, credit card used for damage deposit. Cards or PayPal may be used with w rental rate adjustment.

                      The location is ideal. Situated at the top of Cape Cod, just north of Sandwich before you cross the Cape Cod canal, you have the advantage of staying out of the traffic backups, and being on vacation while others are parked on the highway. Sandwich is 2 miles to the south, and Plymouth is 15 miles to the north. Plymouth Rock, the Mayflower, and the incredible Plymouth Plantation (which is like a trip in a time machine) are appealing destinations. Charming Sandwich is also two miles away and has a Glass Museum and Heritage Plantation and a fine antiques auction on alternate Saturdays. The area has many fine golf courses, antique shops, and historic homes -- some of which date to the 1600s. The Cape Cod Canal offers great biking paths. A 30 minute drive away are the ferries to Martha's Vineyard and Nantucket, and 50 minutes to the mansions of Newport.

                      Other Activities: Cape Cod Bike Path is very close, and FUN! Golf galore.

                      Golf: (Actually, while there are great golf courses nearby -- at Pinehills, White Cliffs, and throughout the Plymouth and Cape Cod areas, we thought we should give you more details on the house. We can provide more information for golfers should they inquire:) The master bedroom has a lake view, a queen-sized bed, a graceful soaking tub, tile shower, and wood-counter vanity with vessel sink and Grohe faucet. The middle bedroom has lake view, 2 full-sized beds with antique cannonball headboards. The 3rd bedroom has a lake view, 4 twin beds. The 4th bedroom is courtyard side and features two single beds. The main floor bedroom (just off the Gathering Room and mini-kitchen/wet bar) has a queen bed and adjacent bathroom (grab bar installed in tub wall) and is perfect if you have an older family member in your vacation party. And there is more. Tamarack has a private boat dock with jet ski ramp, a sandy beach, a boathouse with a bunk-bed and all-glass boathouse doors, with the lake lapping at the edge of the boathouse -- a breezy shady place to sit a spell. Plus, for those considering accessibility, most of the home's features are at-grade. The slope down to the water is an easy stroll, and there is a secondary driveway down by the dock that enables access by car should there be a special family member with particular needs.

                      The circular driveway allows multiple vehicles to navigate through the park-like setting.

                      Ski: Please see our other listings if Tamarack is already taken. It would be our honor and pleasure to welcome you and your family for a vacation or event that is beyond your expectations.

                       

                      Owner info

                      About the owner: To me, creating the perfect waterfront getaway home is an art form. My lifelong career had been in designing publications, and later creating magazine illustrations and painting expressionistic works on canvas. When I first decided to rent my weekend home so I could renovate an incredible but dilapidated cottage (which became, at great expense, 'Timberframe Cottage') I did not know this would become my work and my passion. Working in 2d was fun and rewarding, but my new ART is creating vacation homes that themselves are 'works of art.' My goal with my homes, as with my art before, is to create a setting that exceeds your expectations, and in turn, your patronage lets me continue my art form a few more years. Please read the guest comments to see the generous and enthusiastic compliments we've received. Finding just the right furnishings, using classic Nantucket decor, using materials such as massive beams, barnwood ceilings, wide pine floors, RL sheets, antique cabinets, and creating gardens overflowing with roses and peonies, clematis, daylilies, gigantic buried stepping stones, blueberries, raspberries, foxgloves (can you tell it is June as I write this?) expanses of mahogany countertop, fine appliances, stone fireplaces, stained glass, with views that will take your breath away. Please look at 'all my rental listings' to see my portfolio art in the form of unique and extravagant vacation getaways. It is a labor of love... for you.

                      Why the Owner Chose Sagamore Beach:
                      We never considered Tamarack Lake Estate as a vacation home when we purchased it. The then-current owners had a special needs child for whom they needed to build a custom-designed home for his future, and they asked us if we would consider buying Tamarack. The house needed a lot of work, but the grounds were spectacular. The mature conifer gardens, the park-like setting, acres of lawn and trees, incredible views and sparkling sunsets over the 'pond.' It took us three years of living in Tamarack Lake Estate to figure out how to fix what needed fixing, and making sense of its rambling and disjointed floor plan. Alas, we had to live through the construction, which is never fun. But now, all its original positive qualities shine, and what wasn't quite right has been resolved. It is a really incredible home (now) and we are awed by the beauty and tranquility of the place.

                      The Unique Benefits at this Estate:
                      The kitchen is a destination in itself. But then there is the great room, as big as some folks' homes. But then, there is the private beach, the boathouse, the dock with jet-ski ramp, a swim platform in the lake, the glazed brick great room patio with its row of adirondaks lined up to take in the view. It is like getting an entire resort at the price of a summer home.
